There are strict rules and regulations that govern therapists through the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). Life Coach Services are not part of that license or registration. Edyn Life Coach follows the same procedures that licensed therapists follow in all instances. The hours worked as a Life Coach are not part of Intern Supervision or hours toward licensure for interns working to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).
A Life Coach is an unregulated service and no certification is required. This service is an option available primarily so Skype sessions or home visits beyond what is allowed by the BBS may take place. As mentioned, the goal is to turn no one in need away, provided schedules are accommodating. Payment through Pay Pal or credit card is accepted for Life Coach Services only. Although Kristy is not required to be certified as a Life Coach, her career experience is taken into account for those who choose this service. You will be working with an ethical, educated and experienced coach that will help you through your issues, following professional guidelines.

Standard contracts apply such as Confidentiality, No Secrets Policies, Payment, etc..
ADDENDUM: MFTI Board of Behavioral Science (BBS) Regulations allow for minimal session work with supervision out of the office; meaning an intern may visit a few clients (1 or 2) in their home or facility in compliance with BBS policies.
